    Could someone, in 50 words or less, explain Backgammon to me?!

    Brigantyna

    – you clearly missed the “50 words or less” section of my comment. Thanks for playing, though.

    Backgammon: Checkers, sort of. No king. Straight line only. Doubling dice. Go from your home to their home. Win, lose, die.

    I was going to try, but I think your request is actually impossible.
    There are about ten specific rules that need to explained and without illustrations I doubt Ernst Hemingway could describe each rule in less than 5 words. If you’re ever at the People’s Pub in Seattle, I’ll be glad to teach you how to play.

    Brigantyna

    – thank you for your valiant attempt, it’s much appreciated.

    – if I’m ever in Seattle, I’ll look you up. Any game that takes more than 50 words to explain is definitely worth trying.

    We’ve played backgammon before. WTF? Granted, this was, like, 20 years ago, but as always, anything further back than last Tuesday never happened, so…when you come home for Christmas, we’ll sit down and figure it out (and there are my 50 words)

    Christ dude, how drunk was I?!

    Gary Generic

    Well, I as 11 and you were 15…so we were pretty fucking hammered.

    *raises glass*

    Wow. I played/owned more than half of those back when they were first out.
